born, the united nations -- was born as well, by tens and hundreds of the resolution and recommendations issued by the general assembly and the security council. but these resolutions were in a way in vain. we go to the united nations to ask and to demand for a legal right which is the full membership of the palestinian state in this organization. we convey with our fellow palestinian delegation the pain of our people to achieve this goal and to put an end to the torture, and we enjoy our right with -- enjoy our freedom within a palestinian state within the borders of june 4, 1967 with jerusalem as the capital of our nation. our efforts, our continuous efforts so as to reach through negotiations, a resolution to end the occupation and to lead to the establishment of an independent palestinian state is at a locker. because of the policies of the israeli government that is rejecting to commit itself with negotiations on the basis of the international legal resolutions and agreement signed with the p.l.o. and it's a policy of celtments and as the jewish approach to jerusalem so that it never leads to the solution of the two

united nations this week to speak at a fund- raiser later this evening. on wednesday, the president will make remarks to the united nations general assembly. it was announced last week that the palestinian president would seek unanimous vote -- recognition from the state -- for the state of palestine -- seek united nations recognition for the state of palestine, something in that bid states is opposed to. caller: thank you for taking my call, and i do respect the commander in chief. i have been in the service. i was in the air force during the vietnam era. i am retired now at my age. i like some of the things the president said, as far as getting more backbone. i think the president as the commander-in-chief, has to be decisive in his decision. however, i have seen this country over the last 40-plus years slowly deteriorated because of all the things that have been happening in our government. the government is here to serve the people, not the other way around. i would like to see the government actually take a less active role in telling the people how they should live their lives, ok? what i would like to see happen from the commander-in-c

palestine occupied territory. and yet, even here in the general assembly the truth can sometimes break through. in 1984, when i was appointed israel ds ambassador to the unite nation's i visited a great rabi. he said to me -- and ladies and gentlemen i don't want any of you to be offended because from personal experience of serving here i know there are many honorable men and women, many capable and decent people serving their nations here. but here's what the rabi said to me. he said to me you will be serving in a house of many lines. and then he said, remember, that even in the darkest place the light of a single candle can be seen far and wide. today i hope that the light of truth will shine if only for a few minutes in a hall that for too long has been a place of darkness for my country. so as israel's prime minister, i didn't come here to win applause. i came here to speak the truth. the truth is -- [applause] the truth is that israel wants peace. the truth is that i want peace. the truth is that in the middle east at all times but especially during these turbulent days peace must be anchored in security. the truth is that we cannot achieve peace through u.n. res
